Assuming JGB and other incarnations are cheating...not in a specific order

Allman Brothers Band - I love me a jam band
Jimi - one name does it all
Pink Floyd - from Syd through Wishing, really fancy early Floyd though
Dylan - an incredible song writer and yes, I'll say it...song interpreter
Robin Trower - wonderful guitar and has stood the test of time

Interesting though, that in reading the posts, very few of us are able to pick a single second favorite band. GD far and away my #1, while everyone else competes for that #2 spot in my heart...or ears...or soul...or wherever the competition occurs.

That's really hard. I know my favorite composer is Igor and my favorite musician is Miles, but my second-favorite music performing act (to include bands and solo acts)? With everything I have in iTunes and everything else I can think of these are the only possibilities:

The Beatles
Bjork
Buddy Holly
Van Morrison
The Who

But my favorite of those? If I phrase the question as "If I were limited to their music *only* for a year..." the only one that could possibly float that is The Beatles.

Too many choices ... probably have to go with The Kinks.

Most of the other acts I love are individuals, rather than bands: Loudon Wainwright, Bob Dylan, Vini Reilly (Durutti Column is not a real band)

I'm sure Loudon would re-consider the title of the song 'Rufus is a Tit Man'.

Rufus is more of a cock smoker.

Yeah, it was fun - but it was also playing his game ... and I really do try to minimize my negative contributions to this place, I really do.

It's just so tedious: yeah, the guy wrote a novelty song about how much his infant son loved his mama's breasts; yeah, 20 something years later it turns out the kid is gay. I do appreciate the irony, because irony is one of Loudon's stocks in trade, and because Loudon, as much as I love him, is a bit of an old homophobe himself. Having a gay son is the best thing that could have happened to him.

So, the real answer is I LOVE the fact that Rufus is gay. It cracks me up.

But I'm pretty sure that my answer would have been lost on old DR, who was just looking for some quick giggles, so thank you for weighing in ...

In constant rotation, but these guys are staying front and center for the last few years. Definitely one of the best live acts working NOW.

Wow, that's really hard - I have too many favs ...

Pre-GD - (when I was but a young thing): Pink Floyd, Nektar, Derek & the Dominos, Buffalo Springfield, Neil Young

Late 70s - 90: Jerry Garcia, anything with John Cipollina, Hot Tuna, Allman Brothers

90s+: Jerry Garcia, Steve Kimock, Gov't Mule

So I guess the runner up is Jerry - he's accompanied me since my teenage days and I love all his stuff!

I really loved Nektar. The LPs were used when I got them and they sure had their wear. Big thick vinyl from the Bellaphon label and apparently quite valuable now. I have a few live shows on tape and actually saw them again 2005 in a small club in Germany. Not all the original members but it was a great show and they played all their old stuff with some new material thrown in.

They're back here next February.

Stiff Little Fingers are still going, as politically relevant as ever. They've lost none of their fire - or daftness either. Singer Jake Burns is based in Chicago so they do more US gigs than before. Go and see them, and see which band really influenced Bad Religion and Green Day.
Dr Feelgood are still pub-rocking, but seem to stay in Europe.
Living Colour are touring Europe,but have just finished a big US tour. Hope some of you saw them.
